Hold a pre-show briefing meeting to include the following:

  • Target audience
  • Personal responsibilities and targets
  • Review the products/services to be exhibited
  • Run through demonstrations and presentations to be given
  • Explain the design of the stand including the graphics
  • Enquiry handling procedures

  • Dress code
  • List of all stand staff
  • Staff rota including scheduled breaks
  • Show hours
  • Catering arrangements
  • Accommodation and transport arrangements
  • Details of off-stand activities
